Gail had said:
Not sure where to put this. (Maybe start a Hillary Wikileaks page?)
Speech Flags (There are 80 pages of this stuff) so just a couple on China.
Well, given that for the next week or two wikileaks will be leaking a lot of stuff in the Hillary, and given that The Donald did locker room talk with an open microphone, and then given the debate tomorrow… that just seemed like a good idea.
So this is an “open comment” page for all things Wikileaks, Hillary, and Der Donald related, may we live through the next couple of weeks…
To start it off, a quote of a bit of what Gail has in that other comment:
Hillary Clinton Said She Warned China That If North Korea Continued Developing Its Missle Program, The US Would “Ring China With Missile Defense.”
“You know, we all have told the Chinese if they continue to develop this missile program and they get an ICBM that has the capacity to carry a small nuclear weapon on it, which is what they’re aiming to do, we cannot abide that. Because they could not only do damage to our treaty allies, namely Japan and South Korea, but they could actually reach Hawaii and the west coast theoretically, and we’re going to ring China with missile defense. We’re going to put more of our fleet in the area. So China, come on. You either control them or we’re going to have to defend against them.” [ Speech to Goldman Sachs, 2013 IBD Ceo Annual Conference, 6/4/13]
Hillary Clinton Said The Chinese “Have A Right To Assert Themselves” In The South China Sea But The US Needed To “Push Back” So They Don’t Get A Chokehold Over World Trade.“
It goes on from there…
I will just note in passing “don’t get a chokehold on world trade”? Well since they are well on their way to becoming all of “world trade” in manufactures (and then how far behind can financial products be?…) I don’t really see what difference it will make if they own the waters through which all their ships move carrying the bulk of all world trade… /sarc;
With that, here you have it: Open Season / Posting on the Friday Document Dumps and “Why in hades did he say that” and more…
Me? I’m busy making comfort food… we’re gonna need it, whoever wins…
